Subject: any hope of a matrix, at least a soundboard?
i was there, my smokin show, the surge on aiko is a blast of lightnin thru phils bass early on, one reviewer mentioned a soundboard he had after the show, a matrix would be heaven, this show shows non dead heads a bit if the magic ,a matrix would convince any!

Subject: Great show
Of the three shows I caught that summer (the other two being Toronto and Rochester), this was, and remains, my favorite. The first set, while not revelatory, is well played and has some nice jamming, especially for '87 (the first four tunes are all 7+ minutes). The energy is there. However, I must say the second set makes this show. Killer Shakedown, and the Neville Brothers give 'em that push over the edge. I believe this is the first Knockin' ever played (without Dylan, anyway), and to my ears, the best. It hadn't taken it's place as an encore yet, and the Nevilles add a great vibe, as they do on every song graced by their participation in this set. Still one of my favorite shows ever. Thank you Grateful Dead and Internet Archive!

Subject: first show
At the risk of soundin' silly, I just wanna say thanks! Anyone every seeing the Dead for their first time is almost bound to say the same things. But even now I think with the Neville Bros. as guests this could have been the best show I ever saw and will definitely be a favorite memory! You know a little audience in the mix isn't a bad thing.

This recording is better than the other two, but those give you some good crowd reactions that this misses. For example, the crowd surge when Jerry does the skat singing in Shakedown. But for sheer listening (and not the wayback machine) this is best.

I always looked at this as Jerry's comeback party. It was during the Dylan tour but he wasn't scheduled, so there were lots of rumors that he might just show up.

Well special guests did show up, the Neville Brothers who rocked out on Iko-Iko DayO and Woman Are Smarter if I remember correctly.

The Shakedown is awesome, listen for Jerry's skat singing (woahoa). And there wasn't a dry eye in the place after the Knocking on Heaven's door.
